I see. Yes, I have noticed that too. In my case I tried to optimise the URL
by removing the mailman part. Each of my Mailman instances have it's own
virtual http entry and I wanted admin and listinfo to be at root. But no.
No big deal though, I quickly forgot the issue. But now that you mention
it, there sure are some hardcoded stuff still in Mailman. Like check_perms
for example, with mailman uid hardcoded.

Shame on me though, I should have tried to produce some diffs and post it
here as soon as I made the observation. Not doing so, does that make me a
bad netizen? ;-)
